Lisbon is Portugal's capital and is one of the prettiest cities in the world. The residential buildings are pastel hued, the trams are yellow and red, and the streets are slanted. Here's how to spend 2 days in Lisbon.

Visit Castelo de São Jorge or just the Church Tower if the castle entry lines are too long.

Follow Tram 28 Route through Alfama as it slowly moves on the slanted streets.  It isn't possible to get a ride unless you have the patience to wait in the line for hours.
